Of Darkness and Despair (Down Suite)

Listen to Of Darkness and Despair by Richard Charles Stevens (Down Suite)

Listen to Down by Blakkout

we’ve all been there
heaven knows the ghastly sights we’ve seen there
whoever owns the rights deprives us clean air
out of mind and tries left
we’ve all been there
(feel again)
.
despairing eyes
contrariwise to bearings prised from grip
unverified the light which dies
capsized the sinking ship
thinking quick
yet nothing giving
all at sea
in some misgiving
altered beast
on second billing
crawling deep
to plunder willing
killing in the name of shame
of lived in blame
and unremitting pain
(been there)
stinging rain
on peeling paint
saturating milling grain
splitting the basilic vain
to iterate
to feel again
.
feel again
.
we’ve all been there
(feel again)
in the darkness
leaning to despair
(feel again)
whomsoever tethers
through the never
can endeavour
to remember
hell for leather
we’ve all been there
(feel again)
.
shadows narrow
sparrow’s line of sight
owing to the harrowed dead of night
arrowheads beg hallowed entry
unassented shallow gentry
sentries lined up
unrelenting
out of breath
to death lamenting
nothing left
bereft of ending
suffered
cleft
misspent
undiscovered
smothered of encouragement’s consent
uncontented
supplemented dreams of seasons once attended
reasons left to dress to kill
before the steel becomes cemented
once revealed an oath
and meant it
healed all broken bones
ascended
ventured into woe betrothed
to tender growth
where tunnels ended
.
feel again
.
we’ve all been there
in the darkness
harnessed to despair
(feel again)
halfway back from hell and only heaven knows the ghastly sights we’ve seen there
.
it’s a fact
no fiction
we’ve all been there
(feel again)
please do heed this diction
set the scene there
(feel again)
learn to breathe again
when pain careens there
(feel again)
seek the light
to keep the night
from dying
rise up
testify
death defy
revive
and feel alive
for life is sweeter in reprise
and that besides
we’ve all been there
(set the scene there)
been there
(set the scene there)
been there
(set the scene there)
been there
doubled down and found the in-between there
waking life subsides so i can dream there
.
seek the light
to keep the night
from dying
rise up
testify
death defy
revive
and feel alive
for life is sweeter in reprise
and that besides
we’ve all been there
(feel again)
been there
(feel again)
been there
(feel again)
been there
(feel again)
been there
(feel again)
been there
we’ve all been there
(feel again)
been there
(feel again)
been there
been there
.
we’ve all been there
in the darkness
leaning to despair
(set the scene there)
whomsoever tethers
through the never
can endeavour
to remember
hell for leather
we’ve all been there
.
feel again
(feel again)
feel again
(feel again)
feel again
(feel again)
feel again
.
